    An actual STARGATE/PORTAL-THING was caught on film in New Mexico. The footage can be found within the short-film entitled “SUDDEN PORTHOLE”, which is parked at the PROJECT CAMELOT YouTube page (it’s under the George Noory video).

    I’m not selling anything…I’m just trying to spread the word about the unseen-dimensions we find ourselves embedded in.

    My BLOG contains peripheral data regarding the movie and is where I reply to the “debunkers” (use search words “SAM ZURICK” & “BLOG”). THANKS!!

    @noclassatall I don’t understand if you are saying “Most 1099-C’s are issued in response to the debtor settling an account for less than the balance owed” – “Most 1099-C’s are issued for very large cash loans and Mortgage defaults” In your first statement I would agree and coincidentally that is what the video states. Your second “Most 1099-C’s…” needs the word forgiven before cash loans and mortgage defaults at least. As stated below 1099-C’s are issued for a forgiven debt not just a debt.

    @noclassatall I would need to know what context you are speaking in. Creditors are required by the IRS to issue a 1099 – C form whenever a debt is forgiven and the forgiven amount exceeds $600.00. I agree that creditors make errors and by my experience do not issue the 1099c 100% of the time but I would bet against you getting out of paying the tax required by law. It would likely be much easier to qualify for one of the exemptions listed in our video.

    @noclassatall
    A creditor “write off” can be for different reasons. When a debt is validated as shown in the Video Response “Cease and Desist Letter” above, negotiated and settled (as shown in our Debt Settlement Video – to the right above) it is by definition forgiven and as a result the creditor is required by the IRS to issue a 1099-c if the debt exceeds $600. A collector transferring or selling a debt or account is not forgiven and should not be considered in this context.

    gorgeousdzastr a 1099 C is used to acknowledge a forgiveness of debt. Sending a 1099 C to individuals you have not forgiven a debt from in order to claim a debt was/is owed is confusing to me. Regardless, I would verify the debt as we discuss in our Cease and Desist Letter Video listed above. Additionally, you could contact the FTC and/or Attorney General.

    Gorgeousdzastr,
    Approximately 3 minutes into this video we discuss the 4th exemption (Disputed Debt Exclusion). In this situation you would want to file a form 982 with your 1040 with a detailed explanation of your situation.
    You will likely want to watch our video on Verifying a debt included in our Cease and Desist Letter Video

    Line 5 on the 1099-C if marked “NO” will there be a tax liability? I got one when some company tried to collect a debt they claimed I owed but didn’t.

    If this is “taxable” as a small company, I can “by this sample” send out 1099-C’s to everyone, and get the gov to pay me. This sounds wrong, but it is what is happening..

    I never owed the debt, but will I be required to pay taxes on it? Kinda sounds like a scam to me.
